 Product Description

The only Sancerre wine, which can be commercialized under the exclusive name of “Château de Sancerre”

Intense and complex, this fresh, mineral wine with hints of grapefruit is a perfect match for seafood, grilled light fish and goat cheese. The Sancerre Blanc vines are planted in communes within the Sancerre appellation. Grapes are harvested terroir by terroir when they reach their peak of ripeness. The juices from each individual terroir are then blended harmoniously to yield a unique and versatile wine. 100% Sauvignon Blanc

The Château de Sancerre, located in the heart of the vineyard, is the only castle in the Sancerre area. It was built in the Xth century by the Count of Champagne and today, the Feudal Tower (Tour des Fiefs) is the only remaining vestige of the medieval castle. In 1874, the castle was rebuilt in Louis XII style. Sancerre is located about 2 hours south of Paris. Sancerre’s wine production first started in the 11th century. In 1936, Sancerre was officially added to the noble family of great French wines with its addition to the appellation of guaranteed origin (AOC). The principle varietals of Sancerre are Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir. Sauvignon Blanc is particularly well-suited to the region of Sancerre thanks to a temperate micro-climate and stony, warm and well-drained soil. According to most connoisseurs, nowhere else does Sauvignon Blanc attain such vigor, such verve and fullness and such inimitable finesse than in Sancerre.
